Work has been pretty busy so the sketching and updating Flickr had taken a bit of a back seat.
This is a double post of sketches from a work trip to Salt Lake City and a Sketchcrawl both from June!
I have been influenced by Alissa and have been pretty loyal to the Moleskine Large Watercolour notepad. The colours that I am really enjoying at the moment and the way it sits on the paper are: Daniel Smith Fr Ultra, Cobalt Teal Blue and Moonglow and Holbein Lavendar. I have also been eyeing off the six (6) Winsor & Newton limited edition set of watercolours that would make a good set for a limited colour palette (compared to my 21 colours). I could also use the paint that I already own too but the brightness of these colours look amazing!
Back to the US … I didn't get much free time, even on the weekends, but I got a few 30 mins sketches done after breakfast and during lunch time.
The intersections are six to eight lanes wide so you have to sprint to get across in time. I don't know why they have pedestrian crossings as I don't think I saw another person using it. The intersection below was a block from the hotel.
I had a US$3 breakfast from Starbucks. I looked at the small adobe like Starbucks in the middle of a huge car park and wondered who would use it but there was a stream of cars going through the drive through as I admired the SLC mountains. I then walked passed a drive-through of ATMs.
